Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a 60-something who has enjoyed the use of for a handful of years. Lacking pics of my father's family 5 generations back, I began looking for gravesite photos and came into the use of that way.

My father's family has deep heritage in the colonization of America. My mother's family offers a wonderful journey into greater racial and ethnic diversity. So, it is a fun journey.

RE: Daniel Beinbrech info . . .
I see by looking at other searches that there are conflicting dates. I believe the death date should be October not September, judging from the info on the stone. But the birthdate is tougher. One of the things I am concerned about with the 1732 date is the difference in age then between Daniel and his wife Anna which shows her being born in 1712. I could see 9 years difference but would think 20 years a little too much. I would think someone from a surrounding library or genealogy society would know of someone to translate the stone. I have a friend at home who is from Germany and translated a German journal that I have. If I could have a clear picture of the stone, I know she would try to translate it. You mentioned a German website. Is there a German website with info on it? If you can send me anything with the German writing I will send it on to my friend. Maybe easier to send to my email. I understand your dilemma! Cheri

You are welcome. I believe that family belongs together and you have added so much more than I ever could. I know you will take good care of her site.

Eleanor Beard.
Anne..I have changed the name on this memorial. I feel certain she was Eleanor and not Elizabeth.
Please review and I will repost any information you care to write and erase any which is confusing.
Please feel free to send me how you would write the bio and I will copy and paste.
When I really looked and re-read all of the family history it struck me as odd, no children were born before 1834 however they were married in 1821 and then children were born nearly every two years.

RE: Great, Nancy!
Oh no not at all had lots of stuff going on daughter getting married and family visitors and a death of friend of family. I got lots done will be waiting on note from the funeral home and next week will be great to get together to do those. Laramie sounds great if it all works out there are also some in Nebraska real close that maybe we could knock out.

RE: Claims
I wouldn't worry about the claims, if you let them expire you can still take the photos and fulfill the requests at a later date. As you'll notice the requests for Cheyenne Memorial are not readily claimed due to the difficulty and work involved in getting good pictures. I'll reserve the 8th, or other date, and let my partner (Kristina) know about it. She helps me with the cemetery searches and the families' genealogies.

RE: Jerry! Thank you so much for the advice!
I always run my photos through a couple of edits before posting. First one, since I can never seem to take a photo where the stone not slanted, I run it through a little program called Rotation Pilot - download free at:

Then I use a photo editor to crop it fairly close to the sides of the tombstone and save as a person's name.jpg file; i.e. jonesRuby.jpg. On the memorial page click on the add a photo button, browse the saved location and double click on jonesRuby.jpg. A window will pop up with a thumbnail photo and then click on "add this photo."

I always try to lightly brush away any grass clippings or other "stuff" before taking the photo. I have to confess that I do photoshop the stone if there is bird doo on it that doesn't come off with the brush. I want to post a photo that relatives will be proud to add to their files.

I don't want to claim the requests at Cheyenne Memorial, another gentleman and I are working on Lakeview cemetery to get all the graves photographed and undocumented burials recorded. If you would like me to meet you at Cheyenne Memorial and give you a hand let me know. I am retired from the Air Force, live in Cheyenne and spend a few hours three of four times a week working on our small ranch northeast of the city.

Hope this is not too much info. Drop a note to my email posted on Find a Grave if you need additional help.
